The very much anticipated sold out show was fabulous! The sound system was excellent, the show was very well choreographed between stage and screen. Randy Rainbow is the most brilliant political music parody writer of all time, and he can sing! I was impressed with the amount of new material included in the show. Audience inclusion with questions was a nice touch. It was the best being in a theater with 1,200 like minded , diverse, people.

I LOVE RANDY RAINBOW
His parodies are brilliant! His singing voice is terrific! His stage presence is awesome. If someone is a Trump supporter, they will hate the show, and they will be offended. For everyone else, it’s a very funny evening.

SO MUCH FUN!
Saw the Pink Glasses Tour at the Chicago Theatre and it was a wonderful evening. We were on the main floor left hand side. Sound was great, & videos and songs/skits were hilarious. Had a great audience that played along with Randy's shenanigans. A good time and we would happily go again when he comes back to Chicago!

Someone get this guy regular gigs on Broadway and in comedy. He is a National treasure to make you laugh and cry at the absurdity in today’s America. He attracts great warm caring people to his shows also! Bravo 👏 👏👏

RANDY RAINBOW -- IF ONLY I COULD HAVE HEARD WHAT YOU WERE SAYING
I'm a huge fan of Randy Rainbow but felt I really missed out on over half of his dialogue last night due to the sound mixing at the Keller Auditorium.
Jan Poscovsky from Houston, Texas
LOVED THE SHOW BUT THE SOUND WAS AWFUL
Randy was great and he did a wonderful job incorporating his videos into his live presentation. Unfortunately the sound was awful and it was impossible to hear the video audio. It seemed like they bypassed the theatre’s quality system and used their own equipment. Our seats were excellent and worth the price. We just wish we could have heard Randy. The musicians overshadowed his voice . Randy a talented performer.
Mary from Houston, Texas
Sorely disappointed in the audio. Randy’s wonderful voice needed to be heard....clearly...not garbled and booming. With hope this is fixed in the future.

LOVE HIS SHTICK BUT THE SHOW NEEDS TIGHTENING UP
He’s great but we need more new stuff and not a review of the past torturous years

We Love Randy Rainbow! Just love him. We saw him in SF 2 years ago. That show was pretty much like his music videos. Always great. This time, more was given to an actual show.. The Life of Randy Rainbow 🌈!! We laughed so much. What I didn't like is the Masonic. Some idiot came up with the idea to take women's purses of they weren't clear, 3x3 inches. Purses were tagged and thrown in a pile. After the show, you were to get in line and wait while 3 ladies tried to shift thru a mountain of purses to find yours. They couldn't find mine for 30 minutes. AND, although you couldn't bring a purse in, MANY women had their purses in the theater. Shame on Masonic. It really put a damper on the otherwise FANTASTIC SHOW!! Randy Rainbow 🌈 never disappoints!

FIRST PANDEMIC OUTING FOR US!
I love Randy Rainbow. He is a genius.I was, however, a bit disapointed in the show. It was a repeat of everything I saw online. Since he came to Toronto, it would have been nice to have a skit or two about Canada. I did laugh which was great as it was our first "outing" since the beginning of the pandemic. I would go back and see him again whenever he has new material. I am sure his show will only get better overtime.

If I could have heard even 50% of the show, I'd give it a higher review.
But even with great seats (front orchestra) the sound was both painfully loud and mostly garbled. Randy is so talented, and I admire him greatly, but the show just didn't come close to showcasing his talent because of the sound quality... or lack of it.

PINK GLASSES TOUR
The Seattle Paramount staff was incredibly helpful!! Had major electronic ticket problems and they were totally supportive!
Love Randy, did not love the show. It started almost 30 minutes late with no expiation. Sound mix was terrible!!! Too loud and couldn’t understand half of it. The “Audience Question” portion was dismal. Far too long and drawn out. It was his first “lockdown” show which could account for a few glitches, but there is much that needs improving before the show goes on.

LOVE RANDY - TERRIBLE AUDIO
Went to see Randy at the Paramount theatre in Seattle last night. He is such a talented guy and I had such high expectations of his live show but it was totally ruined by the audio - had great seats but could barely hear anything that he said.
I thought it was the Paramount system but now I’m thinking it might be the equipment the team have bought with them as I’m seeing similar feedback from other venues?
The team need to add subtitles so that people can follow along (needs to be more assessable)
Also recommend they lose the Q&A section! Just as more content or a break instead
For me personally, it was a waste time & money - I could have watched YouTube - sorry Randy but I’m still a HUGE fan

TERRIBLE SOUND SYSTEM
Well, apparently there are some spots in the Paramount where the sound is good, but not where we sat. Could barely understand any of the lyrics or dialogue (even on the songs I know and love). It was extremely loud, and all blurred together. We left very disappointed and frustrated—we were so looking forward to seeing Randy Rainbow. I’ll really hesitate to pay for a performance at The Paramount again.
Catherine Oliver from Seattle, Washington
THE SOUND WAS SO BAD WE LEFT AFTER HALF HOUR :(
We love this guy but could barely understand him. The acoustics were terrible. We actually left after a half hour. This wasn't his fault. Hope we can see him at some other venue.
Mary from New York, New York
TOO MANY PRE-RECORDED VIDEOS
Randy is brilliant and funny and has a beautiful voice. But the content he has produced for the past 4 years doesn't transfer to the live stage. We expected something different and were disappointed by his reliance on his videos. I've seen them all and can see them for free, so it's disappointing to pay for a ticket and watch them again.

LOW ENERGY, MAYBE TIRED?
Expected a more vibrant show/Randy
Love Randy Rainbow, but a repeat of past broadcasts i already have seen ia not really a new show
Can see repeats at home, instead Of paying for it
Does nor do justice to his talent

RANDY RAINBOW, PINK GLASSES TOUR
I love Randy Rainbow videos on You Tube and have seen them several times.
I was disappointed that he didn't use new content.
Being in Toronto, Canada, I felt he should have adjusted some of his dialogue, acknowledging we are not Americans and would have received a better response from the audience. The sound at time was not clear and had trouble understanding him. Would have loved to hear some songs from his albums and listen to his beautiful voice. Felt he relied too much on his videos to entertain us. Hope future tours are more entertaining.
Colleen from Los Angeles, California
Very disappointing…….. it was all about his book so now i dont have to buy it. Having Cathy Griffin there was a mixed bag. She constantly interrupted and spoke more than randy. One fun tape and thats all you get…..
Sheila from Washington, District of Columbia
LOVE RANDY - DISAPPOINTED
The show was mostly all Randy's great videos I had already seen, not the "live" show I was expecting. I can watch videos at home. The sound was terrible, loud and muffled.
Linda from Masonic Auditorium SF
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
Masonic Auditorium S.F.We had very good seats at a price. But I would of had better seats at home watching his you tube videos again. I thought he could of come up with different material then the old news. He was about 45 mins. late and no explanation why which I thought was rude. I won’t be seeing him again.
Jeff from Toronto, Ontario
STICK TO VIDEO
So disappointing! I was expecting more of a stage show, not a montage of videos I’ve already seen. It also seemed like he didn’t want to be there.
